And…more good stuff (that’s always the case, I suppose).
As is the Gemara’s wont, it presents a couple of riveting stories on this daf ostensibly because of their connection to zimun or Birkat HaMazon. Plus, finally, the basics of Birkat HaMazon that have been alluded to throughout this section of Berakhot, without being detailed. Until now.
Including a whole bunch of Who’s Who (Rabbah, Rava, Abaye, Yannai, and Shimon ben Shetach). And the logical What’s What of kal va-chomer reasoning.
